Pakistan cricket captain Younus Khan said the team is capable of winning the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa but the players will have to play out of their skin to lift the coveted trophy. Younus said if all the players do their part and contribute as a team, chances are bright for the side to lift the title.

"The sort of team we are at the moment, I don't see any reason why we can't repeat our Twenty20 World Cup success in the ICC Champions Trophy," he told reporters at the conclusion of the week-long conditioning camp in Lahore yesterday. "But we have to give our best in all the matches, no matter whom we play - whether it is West Indies or India," he said.

The middle-order batsman said the ICC Champions Trophy is a real test for all the eight participating teams and the competition would be tough. "All the teams are equally balanced so I don't like to make any predictions, but in such a tight competition one bad day is enough to put a team out of the tournament. So we will have to play out of our skins in every match," the skipper said.
